Around the yard, July 6

I am linking up Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-b-birdin I hope you will join in on the fun and share your critters and birds.

July 6, 2013

These are some of my yardbirds and one breeding bird seen during my local walk in the forest next to my house.


A White Breasted Nuthatch is one of my year round visitors.


Another shot of the White breasted Nuthatch at my suet feeder.


From my fireroad walk, not the best photo but it is the Worm-eating Warbler.  This bird has olive-brown upperparts, light underparts and black and light brown stripes on its head. They can be found breeding on wooded slopes in a deciduous forest. I found this bird on a hilly trail heading down to our lake.


I see lots of these guys/girls in my yard. This squirrel is in heaven pigging out on my birdseed.


The Tufted Titmouse another year round visitor to my yard and feeders. They can be fun when the fledgling are around.


I do not mind these cute chipmunks visiting, they look adorable filling their cheeks with the bird seed.

This week I have some more of my favorite blogs to read and visit. Maybe you might know these bloggers already if not you may enjoy visiting their blogs too.

Debbie, a Jersey girl is so friendly and nice to visit with.... you can visit her here: It's All About Purple.

Diane, is an Aussie blogger. Lately, I have been enjoying her travels to the Australian rainforest. Visit with Diane at Adventure before Dementia

To see some AWESOME bird photography you can visit with Bob at Bird and nature in the Forest of Dean

You can see beautiful flora, cool iguanas and amazing photography if you visit with Maria at Caribbean Biodiversity

Another birder Frank @ the Early Birder from the UK, I enjoy reading his trip reports and seeing his UK birds.


 I wish everyone a happy weekend. Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments.

  4. I enjoy your Around The Yard visitors . . . Many of your visitors are familiar in our yard as well. Interesting observation though. Last year we were overrun with chipmunks. This year they must be visiting someplace else. Squirrels are fewer too. We changed some of our feeding patterns which may be part of the change. I love your exceptional close ups of the birds and wish I had that capability.

    Enjoy the rest of this long holiday weekend.

  8. that chipmunk with full cheeks!! We had one get stuck in our bird feeder - couldn't get out because his cheeks were full - had to scare him and he spit out the bird seed and was able to squeeze through the hole on the other side of the feeder!! Greed will get you into trouble!!
    Great bird shots too!

  20. You have some lovely birds Eileen and it's nice to see I am not the only one with squirrel... x

  21. Oh My... You wouldn't love Chipmunks if you grew flowers.. They dig up our bulbs --mostly Tulips--but most anything they can get. They tunnel through the beds... They are as bad or worse than the squirrels.... Oh Well... Tis nature!!!!

    Love your birdie photos... We have the nuthatches and Titmice all year round also.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  22. Oh the birds are wonderful - many of them we don't see out here in the west, and the chipmunk indeed is cute. Thanks for the links - lots of good reading and viewing there.

  23. These are great backyard photos. We have all of these critters in our back yard except for the warbler. We make up for that by having plenty of squirrels and chipmunks.

  24. Hello Eileen
    I've never seen a nuthatch upright before, they and the red-breasted visit my hanging peanut feeder.
    Cute critters in your yard along with the birds.

  27. I love the tufted bird and the chipmunk looks like a vacuum cleaner. Thanks for the plug for my blog and thank you for being a regular visitor since I know very little about birds. One day I might be able to photograph some reasonably well enough to share.

  37. Fantastic shot of the Nuthatch! The chipmunk made me smile! Cute little thing!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I haven't seen a chipmunk since I was a teen--my cat came home carrying one by the scruff of the neck as it would a kitten! Love your critters. This past winter was my first at seeing a nuthatch in our yard, a red-breasted one.

  39. You have so many friends to keep you company, they sing too that's a bonus.

  40. Love your shot of the tufted titmouse!

  41. Your yard is a nature center itself! Have never heard of the worm-eating warbler. I love the quizzical look on the titmouse's face. He looks like he wonders what you're doing with that camera!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love your yard birds! We don't have many here!

  45. The Worm-eating Warbler has the most unattractive name and yet it's one of the most beautiful. Lovely shot.....such lovely walks you've been taking.

  46. Captivating photos! I love the mischief in that squirrel's eyes.
